My worst time? This is not even close, says beaten Sharapova

Catch 22 Suarez Navarro snaps Sharapova's streak

Catch 22 Suarez Navarro snaps Sharapova's streak

Arthur Ashe Stadium, Louis Armstrong Stadion and Grandstand have hosted 13 men's and women's singles matches and the main attraction was the ATP match on the Arthur Ashe in the day sessions, with the five-time champion Roger Federer taking upon Nick Kyrgios.

Maria Sharapova says being a teenager with "a few hundred dollars" and "no sense of the future" was the toughest period of her career - not losing in the US Open last 16.

Maria Sharapova was knocked out of the US Open in the fourth round on Monday, losing 6-4, 6-3 to Spanish birthday girl Carla Suarez Navarro who inflicted the Russian's first ever night-time loss at the tournament.

Since her championship, Sharapova has only once made it to the quarterfinals at the U.S. Open - in 2012, when she lost in the semifinals.

The Russian led their head-to-head series, 4-1, and hadn't lost to the Spaniard since 2014 in Montreal.

Sharapova, the 2006 champion, had never lost a night session match in NY prior to her first Grand Slam meeting with Suarez Navarro.

'This time I don't want to feel like previous year.

"Thank you so much guys", Suarez Navarro said courtside after being wished happy birthday by the crowd.

When asked what was concerning her most about her game at the moment, she replied: 'I think not being able to consistently put up the level from one match to another, stringing obviously in a span of hopefully a total of seven matches during a Grand Slam.

However, her performances at the US Open this year exposed serious flaws.

Le'Veon Bell Not At Steelers' Practice, GM Releases Statement
Last week, it was reported that Bell had told his teammates he would report on Labor Day but Bell quickly refuted that report. Bell and Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown arguably are the best players at their respective positions.

It was a great battle in the opening set before Roger took charge after 4-4, dominating in the rest of the match to seal the deal in straight sets and reach the last 16 for the 17th time in NY.

"First of all, if I didn't have the belief to keep doing this and to keep having the motivation and the grind of doing this every day in order to get myself in these positions, I don't think I would be here".

Keys, the runner-up a year ago, is the highest seed left in the bottom half of the draw at 14 and breezed through to the last eight again with a 6-1 6-3 victory over Dominika Cibulkova.

"It will be a really tough match [against Keys]".

Sabalenka saved three match points in the final game and had a chance to hold for 5-5 only to double fault on Osaka's fourth opportunity. I felt like when I had a chance to go for it, I just made mistakes because I was rushing. "I'm very happy because I played a good match".

Tsurenko, 29, had been on the brink of collapse due to heat exhaustion before seeing off Vondrousova.

The Czech world number 103 thought that Tsurenko was exaggerating her distress.

"I was angry. It was weird because she called the doctor and then she was playing normally".

The two other quarter-finals will feature six-time champion Serena Williams against Karolina Pliskova, the Czech eighth seed, while third seed Stephens faces Latvia's Anastasija Sevastova.
